123:1-76-07 Reporting of test results.

(A) The laboratory shall report test results to the agency head or the person designated by the agency head to receive test results. All test results shall be certified as accurate by the responsible person at the laboratory. Results may not be transmitted by telephone, but transmission by other electronic means (computer, teleprinter or facsimile) shall be permissible. All specimens which test negative on the initial test or negative on the confirmatory test shall be reported as negative. Only specimens confirmed positive shall be reported positive for a specific drug or drugs.

(B) The medical review officer may, at his/her discretion, request that the laboratory provide quantitation of test results. The medical review officer will not normally report quantitation of test results, but will only report whether the test was positive or negative unless prior written approval to provide other information is authorized by federal regulations or, if none apply, by the director of the department of administrative services.

(C) Each agency shall provide to the administrator of the drug-free workplace services program a statistical summary of drug testing information, and any other documentation pertaining to the testing process upon request or as required by federal law.
